General Information About Westminster College
In 2004, Westminster College completed a comprehensive 10-year Strategic Plan that will guide the college's direction for the next decade. The process of developing the plan was nearly as fulfilling as the completion of the plan itself. The process was highly collaborative, incorporating the voices, interests, and views of faculty, staff, students, alumni, Trustees, and even outside community leaders and higher education experts. With the input, debate, and discussion from all these groups, we now have a clear Vision and Mission, as well as Core Values that will help us maintain our focus. Additionally, we have clearly articulated goals for the institution for the next 10 years, and specific initiatives to implement to realize our goals. The real value of a strategic plan is not simply its completion. The real value comes when the plan becomes an action document--realizing that modifications, improvements, and changing institutional priorities will likely occur as the plan is implemented.
